Academic & Intellectual Property Honesty Policy

Before you can make your portfolio public, you must accept our Academic and Intellectual Property Honesty Pledge, which reads:

“I understand that plagiarism means copying someone else’s work and presenting the work as if it were my own, without clearly attributing the original author.”

“I understand that plagiarism is an act of intellectual dishonesty, and that people usually get kicked out of university or fired from their jobs if they get caught plagiarizing.”

“Aside from using open source libraries and short snippets of code which are clearly attributed to their original author, 100% of the code in my projects was written by me, or along with others who participated in the projects.”

“I pledge that I did not plagiarize any work displayed in my Dicey Portfolio. I understand that Dicey Tech’s team will audit my projects to confirm this.”

In the situations where we discover instances of unambiguous plagiarism, we will add a message on your profile that states “Upon review, this account has been flagged for academic dishonesty.”

As an institution that promotes and assesses project achievements, we take academic and intellectual property honesty very seriously. If you have any questions about this policy, or suspect that someone has violated it, you can email and we will investigate.
